Another Mass Driving

Five Remain Critical After Crash at Oklahoma State University Parade in Stillwater
Five people remained in a critical condition Sunday morning, police said, after a driver mowed into an Oklahoma State University homecoming parade in Stillwater Saturday, killing four and injuring 47.

It’s time for sensible car control. Complete vehicle registration, all drivers to be licensed, and mandatory insurance for anyone daring to operate an engine of mass destruction like this.

Umm…

No one needs a four-wheeled military-style vehicle massing more than two tons, with a tank capacity greater than ten gallons. I call for a three-wheel limit, with hybrid drive trains, and a two gallon fossil fuel capacity. And only for those who can prove need for personal transport; government-run mass transit is good enough.

And we need to ban those concealable little two-wheeled vehicles completely. Only criminals use those.
